Sony DSC-RX100 VI Overview

  • 1Description

Offering longer reach and improved performance, the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VI from Sony is a pocket-sized powerhouse characterized by an impressive lineup of stills and video capabilities. Distinguished in the series by its extended zoom, the RX100 VI sports a 24-200mm-equivalent ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens covering wide-angle to telephoto focal lengths for greater shooting flexibility. Leveraging the most from the updated lens design is the 20.1MP 1" Exmor RS CMOS sensor, along with an improved BIONZ X image processor, for fast shooting performance to 24 fps, high sensitivity to ISO 12800, and UHD 4K video recording. The sensor's design also provides a 315-point hybrid AF system for quick and accurate focus performance and subject tracking in both stills and video modes. A stacked design and front-end LSI also contribute to quickened operation and enhanced image quality. Video performance has been upgraded through the incorporation of S-Log3 and HLG gamma settings, and High Frame Rate shooting allows you to record at up to 960 fps for slow-motion playback.

Even with the integrated 24-200mm, the form factor of the RX100 VI remains nearly as compact as ever, but still without sacrificing on functionality. A pop-up 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder is a sleek means for eye-level viewing or, alternatively, a 3.0" 921.6k-dot LCD touchscreen can be used. The LCD features a tilting design to support working from high and low angles and its touch capability permits the use of Touch Focus and Touch Shutter functions. The camera also sports wireless connectivity for sharing imagery to a linked mobile device or for embedding location information from your smartphone.

20.1MP 1" Exmor RS CMOS Sensor & BIONZ X Image Processor
Utilizing an advanced stacked structure with an integrated DRAM chip, the 20.1MP 1" Exmor RS CMOS sensor of the RX100 VI is able to deliver outstanding image quality at up to ISO 12800 with incredibly fast performance. This sensor stacks the pixel area, a high-speed signal processing circuit, and memory in order to increase data throughput by over five times and deliver features such as 40x super slow motion, an Anti-Distortion shutter, UHD 4K video, and more. This 1" sensor also has focal-plane phase-detection AF points for faster, more precise focusing.

This sensor is paired with an updated BIONZ X image processor and front-end LSI, which dramatically improve the speed and throughput of the entire imaging system, enabling continuous shooting with AF/AE at up to 24 fps. An expanded buffer makes continuous shooting possible for longer bursts, up to 233 JPEGs. The front-end LSI and enhanced sensor performance also improve overall image quality, especially at higher sensitivities, by reducing noise and offering higher perceived resolution and color definition.
ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-200mm Lens
Spanning an impressive 24-200mm equivalent range, the integrated ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens suits photographing in a wide range of situations. Now covering wide-angle to mid-telephoto, the updated zoom range affords greater shooting versatility while still retaining a compact form factor due to the f/2.8-4.5 maximum aperture range. The optical design incorporates eight aspherical elements, including four advanced aspherical (AA) elements, to greatly reduce aberrations and distortions in order to achieve high sharpness and accurate rendering. A ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating has also been applied to suppress reflections and glare for improved contrast and color fidelity.

The flexible reach is complemented by four stop-effective Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake to suit handheld shooting in low-light conditions. Additionally, Clear Image Zoom can also be used to further extend the effective reach of the zoom with nearly no image degradation.
Fast Hybrid AF System with 315 Phase-Detection Points
The RX100 VI is equipped with an on-sensor phase-detection AF system that dramatically improves autofocus speed for both stills and video. The camera uses a hybrid system with 315 phase-detection points that cover approximately 65% of the frame along with a contrast-detection system to provide fast, accurate focusing in a range of situations. The RX100 VI is able to lock onto subjects quickly, in just 0.03 seconds, and it can use AF tracking when shooting at 24 fps.

In order to make operation seamless, an accelerated display system offers reduced blackout for easier tracking when using either the EVF or LCD. Furthermore, an AF-A mode is available, which will allow the camera to automatically switch from AF-S and AF-C mode as the situation needs. Users can also display the phase-detection area to help users focus on their subject.
UHD 4K Video Recording
Able to record UHD 4K video at 30/24 fps, the RX100 VI, is capable of producing movies with exceptional clarity. By using a full pixel readout without binning, the camera collects about 1.7x the information needed for 4K output. This oversampling helps to increase clarity while reducing the impact of moiré and jaggies. Fast Hybrid AF is available during movie shooting for ensuring accurate, fast tracking using phase-detection AF points. The camera also offers Sony's advanced XAVC S format for recording a high bit rates up to 100 Mb/s. In addition to high-resolution internal recording, uncompressed HDMI output also enables the use of an optional external recorder for clean 4K recording with 4:2:2 sampling.

Affording extensive customizable color and gamma controls, the RX100 VI allows users to adjust the gamma, black level, knee, color level, and more. Also, users can use the same S-Log2 Gamma Curve that is found on high-end Sony Cinema cameras that squeezes up to 1300% more dynamic range into the video signal then traditional REC709, for increased post-production flexibility. HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) support is also available, along with the BT.2020 color space, for recording within a wide color gamut and, in addition to S-Log2, S-Log3 is also available for producing an effective 14-stop dynamic range with increased grading control in the shadow to mid-tone regions of the image.

Speed is also a huge advantage of the RX100 VI, and, in video, users will benefit from advanced High Frame Rate shooting and super slow motion. In Full HD, shooters will have access to a standard 120 fps setting that will enable outstanding slow motion when placed in editing software. In addition to this, the camera also offers a dedicated HFR mode that boosts the camera's frame rate to up to 960 fps.

A Photo Capture function is built directly into the camera, allowing shooters to quickly save an 8.29MP still from their UHD 4K movies. Full HD can also benefit from this feature, where users will be able to pull a 2MP still. Additionally, the camera is NTSC/PAL switchable, making it usable around the world.

    Sony DSC-RX100 VI Reviews

    Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VI Digital Camera is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 73.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from big improvements in RX100-VI I started with V-1 and upgraded to V-2, but refused to upgrade when Sony backed the zoom from 100 to 70. When this version came out 2 items stood out as winners to me - zoom to 200 and finally the viewing screen flips for doing selfies. Upgraded speed and cmos doesn't hurt. My only big wish is the touch screen is pathetic, compared to Lumix DS-Zs200, which the menus are great to work with. I actually have both cameras along with 3 other Sony newish bodies. Great camera for people who want a couple steps above a point and shoot, but don't want to carry around a bigger camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera! I bought this camera for my wife for her first digital camera.  Its a Christmas gift, but I gave it to her early.  Anyway, she loves it.  Its perfect for her as she can start her use as a point and shoot and expand her control as her knowledge grows. The built in flash seems to work fine.  The sharpness is amazing.  The zoom range is perfect.   Low light does not seem to be a problem as she took pictures of Christmas lighting on many homes and all turned out quite well. The included leather Sony case is quite nice.  The 64 G  memory chip is a nice inclusion as is the extra battery. Only negative is a too brief manual from Sony. Service from B&H is excellent as usual.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well built but with pros and cons First the good parts - Great zoom range, solidly built, lots of features (Ill probably never use).  The menu system could be better but Im getting the hang of it.  When you pack so much into a small camera it makes sense that many settings are menu based and not button based.  Sharpness seems excellent so far. Cons - Terrible at low light.  Not just that the lens is not fast but also the noise is significant.  If you keep the ISO down youll be fine but the noise at higher ISOs is disappointing. Since I intend to use this camera for mostly daylight photography I should be ok, but surprised that the sensor isnt better at higher ISOs like 1600.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good but not perfect GOOD THINGS: 1) very good image quality from such a compact camera; 2) very useful zoom range; 3) majority of controls and settings are straightforward and intuitive; 4) really excellent viewfinder for such a compact camera; 5) tilt screen is very useful; 6) ergonomics are generally excellent. NOT SO GOOD: 1) close-focus distance is a severe letdown; 2) flash is cut-off at close focus distance; 3) the individual eye adjustment of the pop-up viewfinder does not stay put, it seems to shift every time the viewfinder is collapsed. MIGHT HAVE HAD: 1) hotshoe for external flash; 2) provision to mount and accessory close-up filter (simple to make: just something that's a slip-on fit over the 37.5mm OD end of the lens); 3) portrait orientation horizontal sweep panoramic mode.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPERIOR The camera is solid, very well built, and performs very similar to prior cameras in the RX100 lineup. The images are very crisp, near 24mm and 200mm a trained eye may notice some slight details, but this is a pocket camera rather than a DSLR, so I had to remind myself to check image quality vs. my other point & shoot camera for a fair evaluation of the image quality. determination ... excellent ! The camera fits into the leather carry case like a glove, protecting it well without making it hard to get to. The camera powers up quickly, the EVF is stunning in terms of quality. The moveable/touchable screen allows you to shoot at any angle and still see the screen clearly. The screen feels very well built, not like it's going to snap off if you accidentally bump it wrong. No complaints, i shoot Nikon with DSLR but these Sony RX100 cameras are the cream of the crop in their class. The 24mm setting provides awesome architectural images, and the 200mm setting allows you to really reach out and touch your subject. I'm shooting portraits at 120mm range, with about 12 feet between myself and the subject, and a good 30 feet of clear space behind ... the differential focus (bokeh) is amazing, i really can't tell the difference between images shot with a DSLR camera. I recommend getting a couple extra batteries, the screen likely uses up a fair amount of power, because the battery drain appers faster than i am used to with prior point & shoot cameras. Worth the money if you enjoy really nice images, but either don't want to labor with a DSLR, or need it on the go like when on vacation. This is NOT a substitute for a DSLR, but if you didn't tell someone your images came from a point & shoot, no one would ever likely know the difference, they're that good.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really amazing camera, with limitations The Sony RX100 series of cameras have all been amazing. However, I feel the 24-200mm lens is going backwards for most people. I wanted to love this camera coming from the RX100V, however indoor shots are now difficult to achieve without using flash, as the lens is now 2.8 at it's most wide setting, compared to the much better 1.8 before. It makes a BIG difference indoors. This is a wonderful camera if you mostly shoot outdoors in the sun, or if you plan to photograph at 200mm a lot (for wildlife, birds, kids sports games, etc). Also B&H service is incomparable - they are the best!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Part 2 of "minor, albeit aggravating, issue" This is an update to my 8/6/2018 review titled "minor, albeit aggravating, issue". See below. Okay, B&H replaced the first camera. The new copy arrived today with the same diopter adjustment problem. I called B&H Customer Service and they had no ready solution. I could return the camera and try again or call Sony for repair. Not really what I wanted to hear. I have now shipped off my brand new camera to a Sony contractor for repair. At my expense. I hated to do that but nor did I want to operate a $1,200 camera in a makeshift manner. I could abide that for a cheap camera but it just didn't seem right for a camera of this price and, save this issue, quality. Sony, we have a problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Wilderness Hiking and Backpacking First use was on a day hike to Mt. Rainier. The 24-200 range is perfect for mountain photography and shooting pictures of wild life. Picture of Marmut was shot from 20 feet away. Digital extension provides additional range and provides good results. This camera takes great videos that are sharp and video stabilization works great. Swing down display was a big help shooting pictures of wild flowers. Well worth the price!
